A program that worked with local youth through education, environmental sustainability programs, surfing, entrepreneurship and FUN!
Besides volunteering, what other activities can future volunteers expect to do while visiting Lobitos?
Can you share one story that stands out to you / you think about today during your experience in Peru?
Being a part of something like this that will impact the community long after we are there is pretty special.
Based on your experience, what kind of affect does WAVES have on the local community? How do you feel it is helping Lobitos grow?
What kind of impact has WAVES made on personally?
For me, WAVES reminded me of the simple things in life that really matter. This experience came at an interesting time for me personally in my life where I was in a big transition between major life-decisions, career, travel, and all the crazy unnecessary stresses we like to throw on ourselves. Being able to step away and focus all my energy positively on youth and this community was so refreshing.
The community of Lobitos is thriving with the most creative, driven, and friendly people anywhere I’ve been. I’m happy to say these incredible individuals will be my friends for the rest of my life.. and for that I am forever grateful this experience brought us together.
MUCHAS GRACIAS to this legendary artist/man/volunteer for sharing his story and making an impact on the community of Lobitos. Also WAVES appreciates the board donation from Shaper Studios along with Lucky Bastard Co who laced him up with lip balms, stickers, and candles that he passed out along the way.
